EXCLUSIVE: Jeff Berg’s Resolution is launching a TV lit department with the hire of boutique TV lit agency Rothman Brecher Kim partner Dennis Kim, as senior television agent representing writers, producers and directors. Since unveiling Resolution in January, Berg has built up the motion picture lit and film and TV talent divisions of the agency with a number of high-profile hires. The appointment of Kim gives Resolution a toehold in the lucrative TV lit business. “Dennis provides us with a deep set of relationships across the broadcast and cable communities. He is a highly respected agent and will play a key role in developing our television business,” Berg said. “We are fortunate to have him join us as he will be working with many of our film clients as well as the writers and producers he has represented over the years.”
Kim began his career at UTA where he was promoted to agent off then-partner Gavin Polone’s desk. He joined The Rothman Agency in 1998 and was elevated to partner in 2012 when the agency’s name was changed to Rothman Brecher Kim. The agency, which recently has been approached by a number of companies about being acquired but has opted to remain independent, will now revert to its previous moniker Rothman Brecher. “We’re going to miss Dennis Kim, our partner for the last year and associate for the previous 14 years, who has elected to join Resolution Agency,” owners Robb Rothman and Dan Brecher said. “All of us at the company wish Dennis the best. Luckily we found some Rothman Brecher stationary in storage which will tide us over until the new stuff arrives”.
Kim’s clients include Suits creator-showrunner Aaron Korsh; Copper co-creator/executive producer Will Rokos; Supah Ninjas creators/showrunner Leo Chu & Eric Garcia; Bridget Tyler, creator/co-executive producer of USA pilot Horizon; 30 Rock‘s Josh Siegal & Dylan Morgan; playwright David Rambo (Revolution); Tom Scharpling (Monk); and Todd Levin (Conan).
